But we are happy to provide you with something new. Our clients and partners often ask us at Magento events if we have a ready solution that helps to create a multifunctional Magento 2 store from scratch. We finally made it – a Starter Pack. The kit comprises of 5 biggest sellers among Amasty clients who just open stores on Magento:

With this all-purpose kit, you can build any store: clothing, cosmetics, grocery, auto parts store, unique eco-products shop and others. All the modules go with free lifetime updates and free 90 days of support.

 

Starter Pack is a fast way to start a new business from scratch at minimum cost!

Intuitive Navigation

Apply intuitive layered navigation to let customers find the needed goods in seconds. The flexible search settings allow you to add a horizontal navigation menu to Magento store from the admin panel:

horizontal navigation block

Or you can enable multiple choice, so your customers can choose needed colors and sizes at the same time. Say, a woman looks for the same colored hoodies to make a family Xmas photo. She chooses orange and yellow colors, sizes S, M, and XL.

select several filter values

Or another example. Say, you have a multi-brand store and some of the brands are of particular popularity. Thus, you can place a More from this label block to your product pages, so that the customers who want to buy Nike leggings will see other Nike goods that can motivate them to buy more:

more from this label widget

Single-Page Checkout

Magento 2 has a two-step checkout by default. We offer you to make a one-step. According to the latest survey, about 28% of shoppers don’t make purchases because of the long checkout.

The mod is adaptive for fast Magento checkout creation, therefore you are free to choose what blocks to place and exclude.

Say, your customer wants to choose the exact day and time of delivery. Enable the option and process the data from the admin panel. Choose days and hours available for delivery, enable customers’ commenting or write a default notification like “Home delivery within 30 minutes and Take Away in 10 stores from NY to LA!” :

Let’s see another case. How boring is entering your address data into the endless checkout fields? Our mod with Google Auto Suggest offers a dropdown with variants once a user starts typing the address:

google auto suggest

Perfect 1-to-3 Position in Google

More often than not start-ups flout additional expenses on a full-time SEO specialist. This is because of such problems as duplicate content, non-unique URLs, 404 errors, lack of cross-linking.

This module will help you manage basic optimization tools for Magento without SEO certificates. It automatically builds cross links, creates XML Google sitemap, generates tags for a category, product or any other page, etc.

You can add product rating and stock status to Google rich snippets in the admin panel:

Or even display a search input box in the snippet:

search box google

Also, you can set automated cross-linking and redirects. So your customers will never more see this ill-fated 404 error that makes them leave the site. Moreover, Google defines websites with a big quantity of 404 pages as low-quality and assign lower positions in SERPs.

If you’re still afraid that you’ve missed something without a specialist, this smart SEO Toolbar will show how well you’ve done your work and what can be improved. In our example below, we see that we need to write an ALT tag for 1 image:

And all these tools work for one goal – have a top-ranking store and support your website health in the norm.

20+ Promotion Types

It’s not as easy to be a Pro with native Magento 2 promo settings, however, it’s simple with a wide range of options we offer, for instance:

  • “Buy shampoo and get the hair conditioner for free”
  • “Buy a T-shirt and get a 50% discount for the second one”
  • “Spend $100 and get $20 off”
  • “Buy 5 notebooks for $4”
  • “Get the bed and mattress for $700”

Also, you can create more complicated custom promos for your marketing needs:

  • “After you buy a set of winter wheels for the full price a set of summer wheels will go with 30% off”
  • “When buying 6 books for the full price each second one will go with $15 off”

To sum up

We’ve decided to sup up the above with a summary table, see for yourself!
